Common Business Disputes
We can represent business in a number of different disputes. We have experience representing Florida businesses in:
- Contract disputes. Contracts are the foundation of all good business relationships. However, the details of a contract are often not agreed upon, and parties are left up in arms about what steps to take next. We can help you to negotiate a contract and mitigate major disputes, as well as resolve disputes if they do surface.
- Collection disputes. In some cases, there are dispute or disagreements about when a business owes another money, and if so, how much. Businesses may also be in a disagreement surrounding the nature of a collection – for example, if a business is dissatisfied with the work of another, are they still liable to pay for said work? We work hard to resolve collection disputes to ensure that you get the money you are owed, or retain the money you are entitled to.
- Partnership disputes. Business partners will sometimes make the mistake of entering in a joint business together without first underlying each partner’s duties, responsibilities, and rights. Without a partnership agreement, disputes are more common, although even when a partnership agreement does exist, disputes may still happen. Our attorneys can represent you during all partnership disputes.
- Breach of contract cases. A contract is a legally binding document that outlines the rights and the duties of all parties to the contract. If a party does not uphold a specified contract provision, they can be held liable as such. Our contract lawyers are highly experienced at drafting contracts and assessing them for validity, as well as investigating and analyzing breach of contract cases.
- Corporation formation/restructuring disputes. New businesses are formed, and existing businesses are restructured or dissolved all of the time. However, when there are multiple interested parties, how formation or restructure will occur may be hotly disputed.
In addition to the above, we can also represent businesses during real estate dispute, labor disputes, discrimination claims, energy disputes, torts, breach of intellectual property law disputes, and more.
Our Business Dispute Resolution Strategies
Our attorneys strive to resolve all business disputes out of court. We do this through negotiations and mediations, working with parties to find a resolution that is feasible for all. We strongly believe that resolving disputes out of court is the best thing for the majority of Florida businesses.
While we are highly competent in a courtroom and can represent your business during business litigation, there are some notable downsides to taking your business dispute to court. First of all, court proceedings are public record, meaning that your company will be airing its dirty laundry, so to speak, compromising confidentiality and potentially your business’s reputation as well. Further, court battles can take multiple months or even years to resolve, costing your business precious time. Finally, litigation is expensive, and court fees and attorneys’ fees quickly add up.
